We have a team of eminent psychiatrists from Kolkata, who specialise in treating and managing various psychiatric conditions prevalent today. Trained at renowned institutions in India and abroad, they are regularly invited to speak at national and international forums.
Our doctors’ areas of interest range from neuropsychiatry, adult and child psychiatry, personality disorders, substance de-addiction, psychosexual disorders, delusional disorders to schizophrenia among others.
You need to consult a psychiatrist when your symptoms are distressing enough to affect your biological functioning, including sleep, appetite, sexual interest and energy. If your occupational and social functioning feels hindered, it is time to seek help from a professional.
Therapists and clinical psychologists can help address the cause of your problems but you will have to visit a psychiatrist if you need medications to be prescribed and monitored for you. Psychiatry and prescriptions usually go hand in hand.
Different people respond differently to psychiatric medication. Our psychiatrists thoroughly evaluate both children and adults before prescribing medication to them. Medication can help reduce symptoms like inattentiveness, hyperactivity, impulsivity, depression among others. Contrary to popular belief, medication is not addictive and sometimes necessary. Like a physical illness requires you to take certain medicines to treat it, so does a mental, emotional or behavioural disorder when you develop one. It’s as simple as that.
Are you facing problems adjusting to life changes? Are you anxious or worried all the time? Has your depression lasted for more than 21 days? Have you been having suicidal thoughts?
If yes, it’s time for you to book an appointment with a psychiatrist.
We’ve got your back. At Caring Minds, you can find the help you’re looking for. We have the most sought after mental health professionals working with us for your mental, emotional and behavioural wellbeing.
